Ahearne Pošip 2016
$ 73.00 incl. GST
From Bogdanuška (translates Gift from God), Kuć and Pošip. The first two varieties are rather neutral in character, so Jo decided to experiment with extended maceration to build a deeper flavour profile. A range of skin contact times are blended together here, from 10 days to a tiny portion which sees 340 days. Additionally, based on the Champagne experience, additional components with extended lees contact are also included, most notably a tiny portion of the previous vintage wine which sees some 21 months on solids – this component bringing in some amazing non-oak derived toastiness

The noble variety of Croatia, indigenous to Hvar’s neighbouring island Korčula. Juice is hyperoxidized to remove bitter components pre fermentation, and the wine sees no oak. There is no malolactic fermentation, and as per the rosé, texture and mouthfeel is built through bâtonnage. The vineyard is picked in three tries, to bring in components of freshness and full ripeness, allowing the full flavour spectrum of Pošip to show between apricots and peaches, through to zesty limes – think Pinot Bianco meets Chardonnay with a dot of Viognier.
